Which drag radials is best recommended? Nitto 555, BFG G-Force (the old style that's discontinued, but Summit still has some in stock.), or Mickey Thompson ET Street Radials. There all in the price range of $145-$160. I can get the Nittos at Discount, but the others I'd have to pay shipping from Summit.

I am going to need new sneakers next season. Right now I've got the factory Good Year 245/45ZR17. I'll probally have 38k on them by next fall. I want to get something different mostly because of tread noise. I'm torn between the BFG's or the Yokohama's,I know rice tires,but are they any good? The tyread design looks like the could be a less noisy ride than the Good Years. Another thing I'm worried about is how a different tire will look! Any comments?

go w/the MT's. one of my friends has the bf's on his gt and they don't heat up and grab near as well as the MT's on my 5.0. plus they bf's wear out quicker.

Good to know!

The MT Drag radials are so good that they aren't allowed in drag radial so that should tell you something.

E/T Streets all the way!! Or if you can find some MCreary or M&H Racemasters. We have had better luck with our cars on E/T Streets than some slicks, because of the size/diam. vs sidewall roll, etc. RUN TUBES!! Most guys make the mistake of running the small tires tubeless. Have them screwed, and balanced as well. While you are puting on new tires do it right! Tubes will offer up less headaches with flats,and allow the chassis to be more acurately tuned, due to the consistency of the air pressure.

I currently ride on Yokohama's. I tend to get a little crazy on the road as far as taking tight corners pretty quick, i'm a country boy on country roads... what can i say.... the Yokohama's keep me stuck to the pavement, they dont chirp when the turning gets tough either. so i'd recommend them. but i havn't had anything else, i'm about due for new tires here soon. they're pretty good on tread ware, but not the best.... but like i said, i'm a little speed demon and i dont think any tire will hold up too long to what i do to them. i'm going to try some other tires here soon, i'll let you know how they work for me
